Scout back roads in late summer and early fall. Get reacquainted with favorite hunting areas and explore new roads and trails.
Nothing is as frustrating as finding the road to your favorite duck blind is no longer open to you because somebody else now owns the farm it runs through. Finding a new way to get there on opening day will cost valuable hunting time.
Private land you used to hunt for deer could now be public land open to anyone. All the habitat on the land you hunt for pheasant and quail may now be a new housing development. Get out there and find out now. It’s also a good time to locate campsites and it’s an opportunity to meet with private landowners and gain permission for future hunts.
